Are these temperatures normal at 0.2% CPU usage?

I have taken a screenshot of SpeedFan while it says my CPU usage is at 0.2%.

Are these temperatures normal? I am overclocking the Q6600 to 2.9.

How much will it shorten the CPU life by if its too hot?

Try CoreTemp. BTW what HSF are you using?

56 at idle is a bit on the warm side. Most try to aim for 60 degrees at load.

It won't shorten the lifespan. CPUs last much longer than they are usually used.
